Dear Auntie Bedomom, 

It is your BIG BOY here...you are very welcome for the poem from the bottom of my heart...YES, we are ALWAYS with our moms every moment of every day, in every way! And we love them just as much as we always did and even a little bit more, because of the magic of Heaven! Our hearts burst with love for our Earthly mom's, who will one day see us again to hold us close, to hug us and shower us with kisses in person, scratch our bellies, groom our beautiful coats, make our delicious meals and gaze into our eyes forever! I have talked with little B about his trip to the Bridge, and he wants you to know that he chose his time to go, plus his timing was God's Will, too, because Bedo knew how hard it would have been for you to have let him go, to make the decision for him otherwise. He needs you to know that there is nothing to forgive, nothing to feel sorry for...he doesn't want you to feel badly about his timing anymore to the Bridge, OK Auntie? Please know he is happy with me, and Lee Lee and Rambo and Sissy...ALL of us furry kids...we keep each other company all the time, and we are having a blast celebrating little B's one month anniversary! My mom loves Chinese food, and I always love it too, it is so sweet of Bedo to have us over for his one month feast! 

Love you, too, Auntie Bedomom...please smile today for me and Bedo!

Your nephew always, 

Buddy

Elise,
How cute is that - Buddy in his Dogula costume - I love it!! What a good sport he is - except for the hat part of course!  Lee Lee loved all her winter clothes  - but we could forget about putting anything on her head - she wouldn't have anything to do with that.  I know it must have been a hard day for you to get through Elise...  Buddy took such a sweet part in the festivities of Halloween - you must have so many memories attached to that day.  We never dressed Lee Lee up - and she was always afraid of the kids that came to the door - so it is a little different for me - not nearly as hard - I feel for you sweetie. Hold all those memories close and share as many as you want to - I love to read them...  

I loved the poem your shared on Bedomoms thread - it was so beautiful - thank you - all the words and thoughts help so much... and just knowing that our babies have such wonderful little friends....I hope that thought brings you as much comfort as it does me - thinking of them together, playing, waiting... but content...  

Take care - Hugs...
Melanie(Lee Lee's Mama)

Your Buddy looks so cute in his halloween costume, he sure does have a  beautiful tail. Our Max would wear any thing we put on him and he loved to pose for pictures. They all were having fun on halloween Buddy, LeeLee, Bedo and Max and all the other wonderful fur angels.  ((hugs))   maxsMandD

Hi Melanie,

Thank you so much for your words of comfort - yes, it was a hard day for both my mom and me, as we passed out the treats to the children without him by our side. We always referred to Bud as "our little man involved"...because he loved to be a part of absolutely everything that was going on! He never wanted to be left out of anything, and we tried hard to include him as much as we could in our family activities and outings.

Thank you for your time, and for your desire to read about Buddy's life and the memories we share. I am finding that reading stories about Lee Lee, Max, Bedo and the other sweet furry kids who are so very missed here, is a wonderful way to keep all of them very present and close, and it is comforting to know they were all so very loved and well taken care of.

It sounds like your Lee Lee was a bit timid and a little fearful when it came to Halloween, which is completely understandable. They are all so different and have such amazing unique personalities, these kids of ours!

That's so sweet, that Lee Lee loved her winter clothes - do you have any pictures of her in them? I tried with Bud, putting a sweater and also a T-shirt on him once, but he was never much for clothes and always wanted to squirm his way out of them! In the winter, I would keep his paws trimmed, (the hair between his toes) as he would accumulate snowballs on his feet otherwise, which made it difficult for him to walk, and also not good for his feet. He would always stop and trying chewing them loose, and I also tried gently removing them for him. I had a special beeswax (100% lickable) that I put on his paws, that also helped keep the snowballs from forming between his toes. But sometimes that wouldn't even work too well, so I tried putting socks on him, too...(not always successfully, however). Buddy just loved wintertime, it was definitely one of his favorite seasons and he loved being out for as long as possible. One of his favorite activities was chasing snowballs, and burrowing his head in snowbanks, and of course, wriggling on his back to make doggy snow angels!

I am glad you found the poem on Bedomom's thread comforting - I love to think of them as just bursting with happiness, healthy and enjoying every moment as they play and frolic to their heart's content.

Wishing all of us some smiles today, as we cherish our babies and keep them close in our hearts,

Elise, Buddy's mom

Dear MaxsMomandDad,

Thank you so much for your compliment for Buddy's costume and tail! We were always so fond of his tail - it was his least favorite part of him to be brushed, (also his hind quarters) so we were as gentle as possible when grooming him. He loved chasing his tail when he got excited - it was a little ritual of his, before going on walks and at other times, when he would get excited. He would go in circles after it - it was the funniest thing, watching him go around and around trying to grab onto it...sometimes he would get going really fast! Finally, he would get it, then he would do a few circles with just his tail in his mouth, and then he would grab onto his back leg and hobble around on three legs in a circle, and then he would fall over and start chewing on his paw, while pulling on the accompanying fur! I used to tell him..."poor leg...poor paw!"

That's wonderful, how Max enjoyed you dressing him up - what fun for you and for him, and that he absolutely loved getting this extra attention and lovey from you! Your boy is very photogenic - it's so nice that you have such sweet memories of him.

May we all get to the place, when we can cherish our sweet memories of them, without so much pain of missing them...

Hugs, to you and sweet Max,

Elise, Buddy's mom

Dear my Big Boy:
You are as sweet and as wise as your mom, Can anuty change the good old saying to to like mother like son?.  I thank you very much for your beautiful poem sweet nephew, and I hope other will read it as I am sure it will give them great source of comfort.  It is very privilege for me to receive the poem personally, much more than I could ask for and it could not have came at a better time.  Yes, I know you Big bubly Boy is hanging out with little shy B, and I know you are taking care of your little cousin.  Ah when I imagine the two of you together I could  I visualize you two as the brothers at the movie Reiman, you and your mom will say, this silly auntie has too much wild imagination. 
You angels are being famous for kind and generous, and I know little B has forgiven me, but it is ok sweet nephew, I can take a bit of responsibility to be better.  A little bit consciousness in the mind as reminder of my mistake is bearable.  I don't want to ambuse your generousity as we are two legged are little bit selfish and I am working on that.  We are selfish because we want you guys to stay with us forever for love, we are selfish because we have problem in learning to let go...  We know you angels have finished your mission on earth and had to go back to where you belong.  After little B has finished his mission, auntie was loss and could not have been thru without the help of your kind spirit and your sweet mom, and other wonderful from this site.
I love the line on your poem, "you are the salty tears when we weep" we will cry when we miss you, because these tears are from love and love is eternal. We know deep inside you always be with us, in our thoughts, in our dreams...I had a very good dream last night something very loving and comforting, I believe it was a sign from you Bubly Big B and little shy B.
Hugs to your sweet spirit and to your sweet mom on a beautiful Sunday from Vancouver.

Dear Sweet Auntie Bedomom, 

I am happy for your very good dream last night...it was made for you especially, exactly for love and comforting for your heart! I have my angel wing wrapped around little B...he is starting to come out of his shell a little bit, with all of these new friends but not too much, he will always maintain a bit of his reserved shy nature. Thank you for sending hugs to me and to my mom - she appreciates it so much today, as it is 7 weeks today that I went Heaven bound. Mom and me we would always hug so many times every day...no one could ever keep us apart. We two B's...we wait patiently for both our mom's but we also have many things to keep us busy, so please don't think we are sad or lonely...we are always living every moment to the fullest! 

I am so happy you loved the poem and especially the special line that means so much to you..."you are the salty tears when we weep"...so many tears you mom's shed for us...enough to fill an ocean, it's true. I knew that it would help you to read this poem, and that you would have it at just the right time and that it would always have a place in your heart. I am also glad that it has helped others, too...it is a gift that came to me, and it will continue giving as others discover it, also at just the right time for them. 

I understand what you mean, about taking responsibility to be better...but please don't be too hard on yourself, as you have the disadvantage of being a two-legged! I have given my mom a few lessons, too...she has learned so much about priorities and what is truly important in life, from having me as her son. She just thought I would be with her, for a few more years anyway, and it was a hard lesson for her to learn - that no exact amount of time together was ever guaranteed. She knows about taking for granted, now...and I know she would have spent more time with me this past year and even before then, if she had only known our time was so short together and that we didn't have years in front of us. I know all of her regrets now, and I am helping her work through them, one by one... 

I wish many more sweet dreams for you, dear Auntie Bedomom...I love you and Bedo and all of my cousins very much - big Hugs from your Bubbly Buddy Boy and guess what? My other golden angel wing is wrapped around you...(and sometimes around my mom, too!) 

Your nephew,

Bud Bud

Sweetest Bubbly Buddy Big B Nephew:
Your words are soothing to the soul, knowing your angel wings are surrounded little B mama and I is very comforting...Inside my heart I know it has been very hard for mom for the last seven weeks, and she had cried a river for your, you must have felt it all as you are the salty tears....One thing your wonderful mom has been doing is while working on her own grief of missing you, she transfers positive thoughts to help others at the same time.  I know inside that she is still working on the little regret that she has for not spending enough time with you, tell her that it is the "quality times" that really matters.  Big B Bubbly Boy, I love you no less than Bedo as love is infectious. Bedo is shy but deep inside he is a very sneaky old soul, when he was sick, he even struggle to walk the dogsitter to the door as he always wanted to be a gentleman.  Bedo was weird too, he ate all the exotic fruits such as guarva, sugarpears, pomergranades, and figs.  Some of those that you may not have tried before, will have him share them with you.  I can immagine you bubbly Big Boy with your beautiful Angel Wings, Wings that give us earthy moms warm embraces I want you to visit mom in your dream I know she misses you very much Big bubbly Boy.  I will see you both in my dream, your little cousins love you too and they thank you for taking care of Bedo!
Love and many Hugs Hugs to you and your genuinely kind and sweet mom! Bless her for what she has been doing!
Bedomom

Dear Auntie Bedomom, 

I am happy that you know in your heart, that Bedo and me are always with you, with our new found angel wings holding you close each day and night! It is my pleasure to take care and watch over my cousin little B, we are inseparable and he has shared some of his passions for exotic fruits with me - I never knew what I was missing before Bedo shared his special love of fruits. I also love my veggies like carrots, zucchini and once in awhile a little broccoli, but I am more of a cheese, egg and meat loving boy, plus my marrow bones - they are the best treats and always so much fun - my one grandma called them my "exercise bones" because I always put so much effort into chomping them, plus I would pick them up and shake them! It was always a big game for us to play - mom would put the frozen bone out on a towel...it would have to "thaw" a little bit before it would tempt me...and then, she would pretend to take it away...(she loved to tease me!)...so I would give her a little "play growl" or two...it was so much fun how we would tease each other, back and forth! Then, I would always "win" the bone in the end...(I knew, she didn't really want it as much as I did!)

Thank you for letting me know my mom is helping others, after their angel babies left this earth to live in bliss at the Bridge. It was my wish for her to reach out and be there for others in need, who are struggling without us furry babies at home, in the ways you were used to having us close. Bedo is proud of you, too...your kind thoughts and genuine words of comfort are helping so many here...mom is especially grateful to you and to all of the sweet souls here, who in their own grief are reaching out to help and comfort and share.

Big Warm Hugs from your Bubbly Boy Auntie - mom sends you lots of hugs too, and to our sweet cousins...

Sweet dreams and thoughts of Big B and Little B always together!

Love your nephew,

Bud Bud

Hi Bud Bud, 

Another long day, without you by my side sweet lamb. I was outside bringing the wood down - mindless work and yet, comforting to some extent, because outside was where you always wanted to be. I know you are still there, in the woods watching over me...you are still playing and fishing by the lake, little man...

I should have known...you were too sweet and pure and good to be on this Earthly plane for very long...

I should have known...God was not willing to be parted from your sweet loving Buddy Pup Spirit for very long...

I should have known...other sweet kids like Lee Lee, Max and Bedo would need you to be with them at Rainbow Bridge...

I always knew...how much you loved mommy...the way you put your head on my chest and on my lap just to be close and connected...the way you would press into mom for your emotional hugs...the way you would comfort mom through many tears...

I always knew...I was blessed beyond blessed to be the one you loved and trusted most, Bud Bud...

I always knew...what a privilege, above all others, to be the one you knew and will always know, as mom... 

You are in mom's heart and thoughts Forever, Sweet Bubbly Boy, 

Love and Hugs, 

mommy

Such a heart warming letter to Buddy and thanks for mentioning Max he could use a big brother, all he did wanted was to be with his mom and dad so I'm sure he has his eyes and ears open wating for us as all our babies are doing waiting for their mom and dads to jump in our arms to hug and kiss.  Buddy visit your mom in her dreams she misses you very much....   ((hugs))     maxsMandD

Oh my goodness Elise - what beautiful thoughts - I feel privileged also... My tears are falling - for you and your sweet "Lamb", Bedo and his Mom, Max, my Lee Lee - ALL of us here.  We have all been blessed beyond measure to have shared our hearts with these precious little souls - their love is so simple and uncomplicated - they just LOVE - no strings.....I think that is why it is so hard to let them go...

Hugs to you Elise - I feel your pain and longing...

Elise,
I'm sorry I keep forgetting to answer your question about my Lee Lee and her clothes.  Yes, I do have some photos of her in her winter "garb" - there is one on page 8(I think) of her story.  She never did fuss about wearing her things - I think she was cold-natured like me.  She loved to be covered up too - she'd always give a great big sigh when I pulled the covers up over her.  Thanks for asking - that was sweet of you...

I loved the stories of Buddy chasing after his beautiful fan tail and I couldn't help laughing at the imagined site of him hobbling around on 3 legs while holding 1 in his mouth - what precious memories of your boy.  I had a dog years and years ago that would lay on his back all curled around with one of his hind legs in his mouth - I hadn't thought of that in ages - thanks for the reminder.  Take care Elise...

Dear MaxsMandD, 

Thank you for reading the letter to Buddy - he is a big brother to your little Max now at the Bridge! I know we miss them so much...it is comforting to think of the day when they will be jumping in our arms, with all of their sweet kisses and hugs...and it will seem just like yesterday, and time will matter no more. 

Thank you also, for encouraging Buddy to visit mom in a dream - mom had a dream with Buddy playing with friends and chasing the night before last...then I was able to hold him and bring him close for a hug. It was the sweetest feeling...being able to see him and touch him in the dream...

Hugs and wishes for a happy day, 

Elise, Buddy's mom

Hi Melanie, 

Thank you for your heartfelt emotions...you are so correct, that all of us here, who have connected so deeply with our babies, are incredibly blessed to have been such a special close part of their lives while they shared with us on earth, and also, the blessings we have to look forward to when we are together with them again! I think because their love is so pure and uncomplicated, as you say it JUST IS...is a huge reason why we miss them so very very much...their sweet gazes, they way they trusted us for everything...the pure love they have in their hearts for us in every moment...it is no wonder we feel so lost and empty at times, without them physically here with us. As Bedomom mentioned in one of her letters to Bedo, it is hard to go from the physical relationship with our babies, to one of purely spiritual...it is a huge transition and very hard to adjust to. But the truth is, our relationships are eternal, our connections are eternal and although we miss them so much on this physical plane, I truly know that one day, we will have them again in that way, too. I think it is so sweet, how you visit Lee Lee's resting place every day, how you look for her little signs...the little ways she keeps in touch with you...(her recent 'butterfly')...what a wonderful way to keep her present with you through the moments... 

Thank you for replying about Lee Lee's clothes - I will look for her picture in her winter garb, on your thread. It's so sweet how she loved to be warm, and loved being covered up. You can always tell, when they let out those tell tale sighs, that they are completely happy and content! 

I'm so glad you got a little chuckle out of the story of Bud chasing his tail and that it also prompted another fun memory of your other dog, too. Honestly, sometimes he would get going so fast in a circle, his feet were hardly touching the floor! I will have to look through the videos sometime, don't know if I have one of him doing that in full, but there might be a clip of him hobbling around, after he grabbed onto his back leg - what a funny little man! 

Thank you again, for your kind thoughts and sharing Melanie - it truly means so much, 

Hugs,

Elise, Buddy's mom

Dear Auntie Bedomom, 

I love all of my sweet nicknames from you and I can feel your love for me your nephew all the time now! You have a Goldie boy now, in your heart forever...I always had a way of winning hearts when I was on Earth, even my one vet who didn't know me very long at all fell in love, so it's great to know I haven't lost my touch, now that I am in Heaven with the rest of my pals! That's exciting you might be moving back to Ontario one day - I know mom would be happy to have you closer as Canada is such a big country. Thank you for kind sweet thoughts for mom, and for me to help mom when she is working outside it's true, days are shorter now and she doesn't like to stay out too long this time of year but things still have to get done and she knows I am there in the woods, helping her and guiding her to be safe and stay warm, like my snuggles would always keep her warm. I know what you mean sweet Auntie, about the feelings coming back and hitting you moms hard sometimes for missing us, and we know you loved us to pieces and always will. It is easier for us, because we are in the moment playing and eating and time isn't the same here for us...we don't feel it the same way. We are sending out lots of warm thoughts to you hurting moms and dads...lots of blessings from your furry kids raining down from above to help you through the hard missing and longing times...

Hmmm...I see that little B has been hiding his white pomegranates...savoring for himself but who can blame him? They were his special gift from mom so I won't be too hard on him, if he's not ready to share just yet...

Love you Auntie, Bedo is happy today and still very content after his one month celebration.

Big Buddy Angel Wing Hugs to you, and my little earthly cousins...!

Your sweet nephew, 

Bud Bud

Dear My Sweet Big Bubbly Nephew:

It is always so happy to hear from you, you sure have a lots of charming characters and it works like a charm all the times! Baby, so happy that you are looking out for mum, and so please to hear about you and all the little ones having a good times up there.  Auntie had already told little B to share all his exotic fruits, A always pick all the healthy fruits that detox the bad things from your little bodies to extend your health so they all good, don't be scare to try.  White pomegranades are much smaller but the seeds inside are bigger, more juicy and sweet.  For home made meals, A usually use fresh or organic chicken, and add in parsely (good for heart) carrots, Japanese pumkins and seedweeds, they all are good for you.  The reason A talk about food is because of them little B had an extra year with A...Auntie read an email from Two vets who concerned about little B after his visits (little B was very ill Oct last year) both Vets thought he could not made it, A emailed them back told them the good news....telling them that little B was eating well and healthy, they both were amazed! A cried while reading the email as A misses little B very much! wish he were still here physically!

A sure little B may has little to brag about his mom's cooking.  Baby A don't know why, A and little B had a very strong connection and A hope we still have this, we worked together very well in controlling his health despite of vet's diagonis, they said he had mass in his tummy, bad heart, water in his lungs...but he was doing very well don't know why A did not prolong his pain but he did had a very normal extra year.  If only A did not go to that fateful vacation, he would still be here, but it is all good, he is blessed to have Big Bubbly cousin now.  A is at peace to learn that.  Baby things are quite tough down here for our moms and dads, especially Christmas is comming, there will be so many tears for missing you Angels..we don't know how but just take a day at a time.  Love is like a magnet, once we take a grasp of it, it is very hard to let go...A knows your mum, auntie Rufus' mom are still feeling a little bit guity but they both did everything for you so please tell mom and tell Rufus to tell his mom that there should not be any guilt as they both there with you when you needed them the most and they have tried their very best...Auntie is the Real guilty one, and I am not just saying it, it is the plain truth...it is ok, A made a mistake and A has to deal with it, knowing little B has forgave A, but guilt is just guilt...hopefully my exotic fruits and homemade meals will reduce this guilt to some extend, but one wrong and one right does not make it righ....Auntie just hope both have established some sort of an ease medium...
A is quite tired tonight, writing might have been all over the place, it is ok, I am too stressed from guilt to check for gramatical errors, I just say whatever in my heart in multi language tone..if you are not too clear, that little B can do some translation, don't let him have too much slack, he loves laying on his bed.  A lways have a visual of you Big Bubbly Boy running happily in the meadows with Little B, Double L, Max, Rufus, Miss Dallas, and all the angels.
Hope to see you all in my dream!
Hug Hug Big B and mum

Dear Auntie Bedomom, 

Thank you for your letter to me - I always love to read your special words and thoughts - the translation is no problem I can understand all of your meanings very well. I promise not to let Bedo have too much slack though, he does have that little habit but you know, he is Bedo and we all accept each other just exactly the way we are! All of our personalities are so unique and special just to us - me and mom love learning about Bedo's little quirks and preferences, the wonderful ways you take care of him...mom loves your baby Bedo very much and is thinking all the time of him and all us kids as we are playing in the beautiful meadows together, furry angel babies who have so much love in our hearts for our sweet moms and dads. 

God worked a miracle through you, because sweet Auntie, you gave Bedo all of the healthy perfect foods to have him with you that extra year and helped him feel well in spite of his many challenges! Auntie, you have much to be proud of, when it comes to the good care you took of my sweet cousin Bedo, and he is always raving about his mom's great cooking! My mom too, is very conscious about food and always tries for organic meals, when ingredients are available. Bedo and me, we really want you to focus on the positives now...to put any guilt feelings about the past away and know that everything happened exactly as it should. We know it is hard because you love us so much and feel so responsible for everything that happens to us, but we are in such a good place now and we are together, as it was meant for us to be now - please know that beyond any shadow of a doubt! 

The real truth for you to always remember sweet Auntie - your love for Bedo is stronger than ever and grows stronger each day...as you so beautifully said, it is like a magnet - that is amazing I never thought of it that way! Please hold onto that one truth, above all other feelings because love always wins out...it always conquers everything...all the doubts or regrets or guilts cower in the presence of real love - so that is your truth sweet Auntie - all of us kids know it, too! 

Lots of Buddy Hugs to you my sweet Auntie - all us furry kids are smiling on you and sending all our moms and dads lots of lovey,

Your Big B Nephew,

Bud Bud

Dear Bubbly Boy:
Thinking of you this Saturday, reading your letter is always soothing to the soul as usual  I am so happy you and mom got to know about Bedo more.  Beed Beed had always been  very special to auntie, don't be fool by his fragile look, he is very intuitive inside.  He had never liked Auntie's Ex and always gave him a dirty look whenever he tried to come near him.  Auntie didn't take his warnings seriously and had to paid a big price for that - Auntie hope Beed Beed will guide A with his smart spirit knowing he is always be A's side.  Buddy Boy, you do the samething for mom ok, mom needs your spritual guidance to be at peace and happy.  You can say this A is a bit silly but A does believe in spirt as A has experienced that in humans too...A used to take Beed Beed to a strangest house in Brampton, Ontario, Beed Beed was restless all night and kept on waking A up and scratching Auntie's arms, he wanted to tell A something- He has never done that in other houses.  You can say auntie is silly again but when there is something going on, A always pray for Beed Beed's mutual guidance. A. loves him so much and A need to feel his sprit and A does this CONSCIOUSLY! 
From A's own experience, A could only feel unconditional love from Your Furry babies, in a way it is a blessing.  Love could be comming from any source, by simply looking at a beautiful garden, a beautiful scene you can find love...but of course there is no comparision to looking at the Big B's and Little B's beautiful loving eyes.  You guys have to know that A and mom love you very much, you can say I am whinning but I will say this again and again...
Baby, Thanksgiving just passed by, Christmas is around the corner, we moms and dads need all your spriritual supports to get by and honestly, it "really sucks" with out your physically being here.. you guys love heaven too much, who doesn't, we will be joining with you all someday...having this thought in A's mind, A is at peace after all it is the thought that really counts.  Life is tough we need all the positive thinkings to guide us and to bounce back from dark corners...You are a wise Boy, you tell us what to do and don't forget to constantly remind us that!
I hope your sweet mom is doing better and you watch out for her my Bubby Boy...
Love you my Big Bubbly Boy as always!
Hug hug to you and Mom, send Beed Beed my love!

Dear Auntie Bedomom,

Thank you for your letter and for all the love and compliments! I am reminding Beed Beed how much his mom loves him...he doesn't really need reminding though, because Beed knows and I know too, how much you love him, how much mom loves me too and also how much both our Aunties love both of us - it is the glue that always keeps us close and always present! Bedo is a very interesting character - he does have this intuitive side, and always could pick up on situations or people or that one house in Brampton for example...he knew something wasn't quite right in that place. We kids have a way of "knowing" that goes beyond what most humans can feel...we have this special sense of things, because we are never separated from the Source of all that IS.

Mom feels like you do, Auntie, when it comes to looking into our deep furry baby eyes because our eyes express all of the unconditional love, forgiveness, truth and acceptance that exists in the Universe. We are all old wise souls, and we know how blessed we are too, to share our lives and bless you moms and dads with our presence! We all like to teach, in our own quiet ways. We love to share about the most important lessons in life, and we just love to be in every moment with you, completely ourselves exactly as we were born to be. Plus, we love to be close in every way we can be close, give lovey to you hurting moms and dads who miss us physically, through our memories together and our warm loving eyes that will never stray from your gaze...we always have our eyes on you...never forget that Auntie.

We know life is tough on you two-legged's but that is why too, we are here to guide you with our love, to help you heal from many wounds because healing is also one of our strong suits - God has given us so many ways to help and we love these 'tasks' more than any! They never feel like 'work' for us, because we love you so much and it is our true joy as your furry babies, to always have you wrapped in our angel wings...strong shields against life's hurts.

Hugs to you Auntie - thank you for helping mom so much too...please give my love to my sweet earthly furry cousins - I am thinking of you and will now get Bedo up for breakfast of white pomegranates and other delicious dishes from sweet mom...(chicken soup, soooooo good!)

Love Always, your Big B Nephew,

Buddy

Hi Bud Bud, 

It's mom here - sadness and longing for my sweet boy...missing you so much my lamb...it has been eight weeks today since mom held you, kissed you good-bye and had our close heart hug that neither of us ever wanted to end. You know honey, I never knew that you had a little birthmark just bigger than a freckle baby...never knew it was there until they shaved you for the ultrasounds...what a sweet little discovery about my boy! I loved to kiss that sweet little spot on you Boo Boo, after finding it...it was on your right side, close to your belly and it was so sweet how your little golden hairs were growing back, just a little bit more each day...


I am hearing you chomping on your marrow bones baby - here's a picture of you a couple of summers ago, when we were visiting Riley and you were so handsome in your blue scarf...you each had your own bone and were you ever happy that day!

Bud Bud with his Bone:

[buddywithmarrowbone]


The sun was out, and in this second picture you had your eyes closed, the way you used to love to do when you were soaking up the sunshine, making my golden boy even a little more golden...hard to believe it was just a few yesterday's ago, Lammie. What a beautiful grin, my tender boy you are in the sun's rays every day now, warming mom's heart forever and always...and all those others hearts you touched in your life and continue to touch from Heaven...

You always did have a way with hearts, sweet boy.

[buddygrinningboy] 

Please be happy today with your pals at the Bridge Bud Bud - I know you are on the welcoming committee, getting acquainted with all of the new kids and making sure they adjust to their new wings...I know you are having fun sweet son. 

Love you Bud Bud - please give Double L, Bedo, Rambo, Rufus, Max and new arrivals Lexie and Jay and all the ones mom isn't remembering by name...please give them lots of hugs, kisses and scratches.

Love always Sweetness,

mommy

Oh Elise - I love these new photos of your Buddy - he looks completely content there with his little eyes closed and that great big smile on his face.  I hope you can take comfort in knowing he is just that happy, plus a million times over, at the paradise of the Bridge. 

Happy Eight Weeks Sweet Buddy!  You are a precious boy and your Mama loves and so much. I know that your friendly smile immediately puts all the new little angels at ease the moment they cross over.  

Prayers and hugs Elise - I am thinking of you this Sunday afternoon. Your "Lamb" loves you so much....

Dear Elise,

Thank you so much for your kind post on my thread. Just wanted to tell you your sweet Buddy and you are often in my thoughts, even I find it hard to find my words. It's a privilege getting to know him through your letters and pictures. I often worry that Rufus might be feeling lonely, so it brings me comfort picturing him with Big B, Little B and the gang.
Sending hugs and prayers your way!

What a wonderful picture of your Buddy, he's so sweet looking I'm sure he has so many friends. Thinking of you on your 8th week at the Bridge, I know its seems like forever since he's been gone from home. Send your momma a dream she misses you ((hugs)) maxsMandD

Dear Melanie,

Thank you so much - Bud was most content when we were together and he was just doing the simple things that made him happy. Our babies ask so little of us - just want to be with us, be petted and held, have a toy to play with, a lap, sunshine, snowballs, sticks, and for the kitties, a little catnip goes a long way, and a scratching post or two!

I do take comfort knowing he is so happy now at the Bridge, and I hope that you also have great comfort in that knowledge that your Lee Lee is, too. I love what you said about his smile helping the new kids feel at home - that is a beautiful thought and one that helps mom know he is truly where he is supposed to be...

Thank you for your hugs and prayers Melanie - they mean so much, and also the wonderful reminder that my "Lamb" does love his mommy so much...

Elise

Dear Mihaela,

You are very welcome - thank you for keeping me and Buddy in your thoughts and also for taking the time to get to know about Bud and our life together...that truly means so much! I often think of you and Rufus too, and hope that you are coming to a better place these days. It is so very hard, when we miss them with all of our hearts. Please know that Rufus is definitely not lonely these days - our kids are together and all is well for them.

Thank you so much for your kind thoughts and prayers...

Dear maxsMandD,

Thank you so much for the compliment - like your Max, Buddy is also a photogenic boy and mom looks forward to sharing more pictures and stories as time goes on. Yes, eight weeks does seem like a very long time...the longing to touch him and hold him is overwhelming.

Thank you for your kind thoughts and hugs, and wishes for a dream from my sweet boy...mom could never have enough of those!

Dear Bubbly Boy:
It is Rememberance Day! Let's make it a Rememberance Day for all your four legged Angels Too! Bubby Boy, you are so handsome in your blue scarf, you look so funny with your grin in the sun.  You know, my sweet Bubbly Nephew, you guys always have the cutest gestures...everything you do, you make our heart melt;  Baby, you are really a God sent angel to mom, looking at your lovely face, I can tell, your eyes are windows to the soul.  Yes my boy, whether a person is good or bad, it is all about the eyes.  Beed Beed has beautiful eyes too, they where dark and smooth like black pearls when he was young, and later they turned  brown and when he was about 12 his eyes had a bit of  mearle Blue..he has white long eye lashes and on top of that he has black mark of lashes which enhance his eyes so well...silly me, you know him too well he may think he is all that.. Bubbly boy, you are a sweet heart so is your mom and I am sure you two are double dose of goodness from heaven and earth. There are so many bad things happening in the world and we two legged are suffering so much...the Typhoons in Phillipines, and is leading to Vietnam...we only need to do our best.  Sometimes Auntie not too sure if there is nature's wake up call or not...you Angels you tell us because we are so lost! There are so many homeless furry kids out there too, and we don't know how to deal with...A just pray everyone of us should be concious about what we do, a little bit goes a long way, we are not a politician, we just simple humans beings trying to do little things that count! Baby, A know mommy still misses you so much, she constantly recalling all the beautiful memories you both have shared.  We Aunties and uncles here love to hear about these memories of too, they reminder us of love, something that is marked deeply in our hearts like a magnet and  can only be stronger as times go by. Auntie misses Beed Beed so much, but when A thinks of him, A feels closer to him and by talking to mom and you, A feel much more closer to him which has really been a blessing and A thank you for that.  A know you Big B always taking care of the little ones, you are the Chief and little B is your secretary and your accountant, A knows he will keep the food stocks under control.  A wish all you kids up there, including Max, The White Prince, Lees Lees, Dallas, Lily, Bailey, Harry, Ellie, Sara Anne and Eddie...and many others up there a happy Remeberance Day, You Kids have to know that YOUR ALL REMEMBERED! lots of kisses from earth to heaven!
Hugs to you my Bubbly boy and your sweet mom.

Dear Auntie Bedomom, 

Thank you so much for your beautiful letter of Remembrance for us furry angel kids, and thank you for the compliment - that blue scarf is one of my favorites! Yes, we know we have a way of melting hearts that is part of our ongoing charm, and we know our little ways of being are so funny and cute! I am a sun loving boy and water loving, too. We furry kids had a great time yesterday - Bedo is helping me the Chief keep a handle on things...he is a very sharp accountant and doesn't take his overseeing lightly. The other kids love having their angel heaven responsibilities too, sending lots of love and little messages and signs to moms and dads, making sure other hearts who are yet to experience true unconditional love are open to receiving...we have our little unseen ways of reaching out and getting our angel tasks done! It makes me happy knowing you are feeling close to Bedo - big B nephew can see that your hearts are together forever!

We know you two-legged's are at a loss for much of what happens in the earthly world, but we all see the bigger picture and do you know that everything is always working out, just the way it is supposed to? There are wake up calls - Mother Nature has to shout sometimes to get the human audience to listen, but in the end, it will all be OK because everyone is going to come to a deeper understanding and sense of responsibility. So you moms and dads keep doing the little things you are doing...they aren't so little after all, because a pebble makes a tiny ripple in water when dropped that continues on and on...a single positive thought and action makes a wave of change that continues on forever... 

Bedo loves to get his letters from mom - he loves that you his mom, is sharing his pictures and stories and her descriptions about his physical characteristics like his eyes, his beautiful lashes - he loves to have these words from mom! Me too, I love that my mom is sharing our love and memories and we both know that our moms are going to continue to get strong, even though the pain of missing us is very hard in the physical. We also love to read the stories from the other moms and dads about our new pals, too...the special memories are our favorites because sometimes kids are bashful or they are so busy playing they forget to share certain ones! 

Thank you Auntie, for remembering us furry babies and for the kisses from earth to heaven - hugs to you too and to my sweet earthly cousins!

Your Bubbly Big "B" Nephew, 

Buddy

Dear Bubbly Big B Boy:
Your letter could not be any sweeter, I love to visualize you guys living a Smurfy town kind of life up there, with all sweet angels overseeing their angel heavenly responsibilities, and each is good at his or her own skills.  I know Bedo is a good accountant because he had learned all the Accounting Principles and he is cheap too. Auntie's teacher used to say that as a joke, but it is true in some ways...   Bubbly boy, what is so beautiful about you angels is that you all have the most beautiful features, your cutest gestures, your kindest hearts, your wisest souls and your forgiving nature.  It is a long way before we can reach that stage but we are working on that.  The biggest challenge in life is resilience, we tend to get crazy when things don't turn out the way we expected and this makes all problems get worst...
Yes, we all love to hear stories about you angels; the cutest things that you used to do that have melted all our moms' and dads' hearts.  It is sad that we are no longer having this privilege, but we will learn to embrace your spiritual love after you left to fulfil your blessings. Tell Beed Beed that Auntie Gets it now, and I am sure mom gets it too...it is our feelings that we need to deal with.  Auntie feels sad when I think of Beed Beed as he is no longer here, but Auntie also blessed that he had lived for almost 16 years on earth, Auntie is also blessed that we had have a very strong connection and we still do.  Beed Beed was like a human being and A is not exaggerating, he ate like human and never had have stomach upset when other kids did...He called A when there was a phone call and when A burned something...A can go on and on but we can save this for next time.   Bubbly boy, you are my nephew and I considered you are family now...I hope mom does not mind as I just love you so much...you are a perfect Golden Boy that A. had always dream of having and my wish is fulfilled now.
A big hug to you and mom and millions of kisses from Auntie to you, Beed Beed and all the angels up there!

Dear Auntie Bedomom, 

Your kind sweet words of love and family mean the world to me and mom. Mom doesn't mind at all that you love me very much, the more love the better is what mom always says, plus she loves Bedo very very much too! I know you are missing Beed's little ways, plus his human qualities that make him so unique and special. Mom always said I had that, too...especially my hugs and little ways of relating and being so tuned into everything that was going on. I can see that Beed Beed was always very alert, and he is still not missing anything he knows everything that is going on here...he is very smart and of course he is older than me so I am learning some of his wise ways, too. I am glad you can hold onto our sweet blessings dear A, because the strong connection you have with Beed, like my mom's connection to me to be is very special and spiritual and it is a treasure for moms and for us kids, too!

Sending forever angel kisses and hugs to my Auntie B, so many of them they are like the stars that could never be counted! 

Your Bubbly B Nephew, 

Buddy

Dear Buddy's mom,
Thank you for your kind words. You brought tears to my eyes. I beleive Myah rescued me as much as I rescued her. I think it must be difficult for many to understand how deeply an animayl can mean to us, but I've learned more about forgiveness and unconditional love through my animals than most could imagine.. Myah was a precious gift as was your Buddy. He was so handsome! He sounds just amazing. I'm very sorry for your loss, I'm sure he is deeply missed.
I'm trying to imagine my Myah running pain free and basking in the sun or rolling in tbe snow, that was her favorite thing to do.
Maybe Buddy was there to welcome her. I'm trying to take comfort knowing there is no pain or saddness in Heaven.
Thanks again for thinking of me
Myah's mom

Dear Myah's mom, 

You're very welcome - it is such a difficult emotional time. I also know that Bud rescued me, too...there is a beautiful video on the Golden Rescue website that they also put on youtube about them rescuing us - perhaps I can share the link here to the video - it will make you tear up, but it is just so true - these animals are absolute precious beyond words.

[video]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FkV9TZP-VC8#t=5[/video]

Yes, my boy was an extremely handsome fellow - we always had so many people, either with or without dogs stopping us on the street when we lived in Ottawa, asking about him, wanting to pet him...especially children - he had a great way with kids. We also had lots of fun at the dog park close by - it was such a blessing to have that park to take him to...just a great place for the dogs to run free and make friends.

It was truly an honor to have him for my beloved son - I miss him every moment of every day. My boy also loved basking in the sun and rolling in snow! He also loved to chase after snowballs and catch them in his mouth - he made everything we did into a fun game. 

I know Buddy was right there to welcome your Myah, as was Bedo, Max, Lee Lee, Rambo, Brandy, Miss Dallas, Maisy, Bailee and Kodiak - too many to name in one post please forgive me as I know I've left some out, including all the kitties, etc...I know there is no sadness there, only joy and wonderful times for them, as they are doing all of the things they loved to do when they were with us. 

Sending you lots of hugs, and will continue to say prayers for your peace and comfort, 

Elise, Buddy's mom

Hi Bud Bud, 

Although Sunday was your eight weeks, today the 15th makes 2 months by the calendar baby, since you got your angel wings and mom held you and kissed you for the last time here on Earth. Mom's been thinking of you all day today, honey...can't believe what you did, though! You little bugger - mom wasn't going to go into town today, had no plans and then just decided to go and when mom was in Canadian Tire, well...I KNOW it was you who sent her! Here was a man walking in front of mom, with a golden retriever! He stopped, and mom started petting her, and he just opened up telling mom all about his life with her...what a sweet girl her name is Clementine, and she went on her back for a belly rub just like you used to do, Buds! And, she had a face quite similar to yours, too...I know you sent her for mom to pet and hug today - mom hasn't petted any golden since you baby...but I know it was your way of letting mom know you're still around and looking out for mom - thank you, baby!

I found a couple of pictures Bud Bud - when we were playing in the field behind Gram's with Joelee...and also a video to share that Joelee took. It was so cute, how you had that little stubborn streak - you never did want to let go of your Frisbee, and loved to play keep away...at the end of that video, you walked away and laid down, just waiting for Joelee to come and get that Frisbee from you, and start the game all over again!

[buddywithfrisbee]

You always knew how to have fun, Buds...trying to think happy thoughts of you today and it really helped when you sent mom Clementine to meet today - mom has never seen another dog in Canadian Tire but they do allow them which is great. 

Love you Bud Bud - Happy 2 months Bridge Day...please take good care of all the kids honey you are the big Chief and I know you are cooking up a great feast for everyone - please give them all lots of hugs and let them know all the moms and dads are thinking of them!

Love, hugs and kisses baby, 

mommy

Happy 2 months in paradise Buddy!  I know your mama misses you so much and is so thankful that she was able to pet that sweet girl who looked just like you today.  What a special gift! 

You look so sweet playing with your Frisbee.  Made me sad to watch since I don't have a lot of video of my Sissy.  ALOT of pics but for whatever reason not much video which means I have to remember her little special sounds in my heart.

Please take good care of her for me.  She would LOVE you.  When she was healthy she used to love running through the back yard at break neck speed!  ( Well at least for a pug!)  I bet you two would have so much fun running like the wind through the warm meadows in Heaven, your little blonde bodies and wagging tails a whir of excitement! 

I know your mama is counting the days until she can see you again and I am doing the same to see my girl.  Tell her I love her and we will see you guys soon!

Hugs Bud!

Stephanie (Sissy's Mom)

Hi Stephanie, 

Thank you so much for your note to Buddy, on his 2 month Bridge day! I know he is great friends with Sissy and is watching out for her...I love your description of them running like the wind through the meadows and their tails a whir of excitement! 

You have been on my heart lately - hope you are doing better these days...it's so hard because we just miss them so much. It was a gift meeting Clementine today, but also sad as of course it reminds me that when I get home, (not that this is really home now, just a house)...Bud won't be here to greet me. Guess I am being selfish, as I know he is happy now and not suffering and just couldn't stay with mom any longer. It is by God's grace truly - I was reading one of your other posts and you mention how it is your closeness to God that is seeing you through. For me the same, and also praying for the hurting moms and dads here...it gives me a purpose at a time when there is little else that translates into purpose. 

As Melanie, Lee Lee's sweet mom likes to count, we are one day closer to being reunited with our sweet fur babies. I know we will all have a huge picnic, we'll get to hang out in person and all of our kids will be playing - what a glorious day that will be.

Sending you and your angel baby Sissy lots of hugs!

Oh Elise!
Two months...I know it was a hard day - these anniversaries are so difficult.  But your precious Buddy came thru for you - what a wonderful sign and gift from your boy - he knew you needed the comfort of a sweet little soul named "Clementine".  How sweet that is - he is still watching over you - your little shadow.

I love those photos - he looks so happy with that big engaging smile of his.  Maybe he is teaching Lee Lee how to catch frisbees - she never could quite get the hang of it.  Your memories of those games must be so precious to your heart.

Happy Two Months Angel Buddy!  Keep an eye on your frisbee - Lee Lee may try to steal it and chew it to pieces.  Maybe you could give her a few pointers about the art of catching them.  Please continue to stand near your Mom and let her feel your presence - she misses and loves you beyond words.

Elise - I pray every day for your peace and healing.  Two months closer to *that* day...

Major hugs tonight..
Melanie

Dear Melanie, 

Thank you so much for your loving and comforting words - they truly mean the world to me, and also your prayers and hugs...I feel I've made some true friends here in such a short time here, and you are one of them. I know you realize so much about these anniversaries and what a mix of emotions they bring, as you've had them monthly yourself since this April up to the present. All the time I was petting Clementine yesterday (the man was very patient and kind...I told him Buddy had crossed over 2 months earlier)...I just knew it was Bud's way of connecting with mom. Our babies always find the most precious ways, don't they? It brought tears to my eyes when you mentioned him as "my little shadow"...his shadow of him walking next to me outside, following me around for his cheesy treats, though sick as he was...that's what I saw, was our two shadows together, against the backdrop of the woods and him gently taking the treats one by one, it made me so glad he still wanted them as it showed there was still some life left in him. It wasn't long after that, he stopped taking the treats and it was my sign that his time was very close...

I am sure, that Bud is teaching Lee Lee all about the Frisbees and the art of catching them! I see your Lee Lee has quite a bit of spunk...wanting to chew them up I'll have to let him know to watch out! I'll never forget one time - it was in the small backyard at the house in Ottawa and he had two Frisbees we were playing with - one was plastic and had a hole in the middle. Well, it was wintertime and I would be playing with him in the back, with these Frisbees, and he was such a little hog...he didn't want mom to get either one of them so you know what he did? He scooped up the Frisbee with the hole in it, put his nose right through that hole and then grabbed onto the other one and wouldn't let it go, so he found a way to 'protect' that first one, because I couldn't get it from him as he had his nose through it, and his teeth clamped onto the other one! I never laughed so hard in my life...it was honestly just the cutest thing, and such an ingenious way of hanging onto both of them! Needless to say, he won that game!

Thank you again, for your support and for encouraging Bud to stay close to mom...he can take some lessons from Lee Lee as she is very good at that which is such a blessing for you. These are the little things that keep us going, until *that* day....

Hugs, 

Elise
